15 Women Share Their Really Terrible First Job Stories

One of the great milestones in life is getting your first paycheck. I still remember that excited feeling of getting that check and taking it down to the bank to deposit in my college fund. It felt so grown-up, even if it came from cleaning swimming pool gutters.


My first job didn't pay very well, but I enjoyed it and I loved getting that biweekly check.

Some women, however, aren't so lucky. From stories (way too many stories) about sexual harassment to the horror of cleaning public bathrooms, these are crazy tales of some of the worst first jobs out there. I think you'll agree that NO paycheck was worth keeping job #11!
